Ode To The Flu



My apologies if this post is late
I'm contending with something I hate
No matter what I've tried to do
I can't get rid of this blasted flu

I've aching bones, a pounding head
I'd rather just stay in bed
My ears are plugged, can't hear a thing
Even when the telephone rings

How many boxes of tissues I've used?
Countless, my poor nostrils are abused
And I blow and blow but all for naught
Because I've an endless supply of snot.

Good luck with that stuff. I haven't had the seasonal vaccine, but I did take the swine vaccine. Our flu season ends here soon. Hope that you're feeling better quickly.

And yet another humor blogger succumbs to the flu. So much for laughter being the best medicine.

Don: I had the H1N1 shot. Guess it's my own fault I didn't get the flu shot. (blows nose) Blah.

Whitey: Well, I'm sure not laughing. Hope I didn't pass it on to you last week.

Quirks: I didn't realize the flu was contagious over the interwebs. From now on I'll practice safe text.
Me-Me King said…
Oh, noooooooo, you too? Just how much snot can one human manufacture? Keep warm, drink plenty of liquids, blah, blah, blah.

Get well soon!

Caught the nasty flu virus from having visited Mad Margo, didn't ya!?! I hope now that I've visited you, I don't catch it too!

Cheers man, I hope you get better soon!

Skye: Thanks. I hope so too.

Hoping you feel better soon. So far, I've managed to avoid the evil flu but I think it's still lurking around dark corners, waiting to pounce.

Kelly: Oh, it's out there!

I've been down for the count myself. I got the H1N1 and the regular flu shots so I can't imagine what I'd be feeling like without them.

Hope you're up and about soon!

CL: Wow, you had both shots and it still took you down? That's a pretty strong virus! Glad you're on the road to recovery.

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
